UFC star Conor McGregor free on bail after bus incident

Conor McGregor

Irish Mixed Martial Arts superstar Conor McGregor was taken to court in NY in handcuffs on Friday, charged with assault and criminal mischief over an extraordinary attack on a bus carrying rival fighters that injured two athletes. Originally, the bout was expected to take place at UFC 224 in Brazil, but officials chose to keep it in the US after the incident involving McGregor due to Covington's past comments concerning the Brazilian people.

McGregor was charged with assault and criminal mischief for the outburst. Both fighters are due to next appear at a NY court on June 14. Video from TMZ Sports shows someone picking up a two-wheeled dolly and throwing it into a bus window, smashing the glass.

If former UFC champion McGregor is looking for help from the organisation, he is out of luck, UFC president Dana White said on Friday.

When asked if McGregor didn't understand what happened, White added: "No I don't believe he did".

But some internet and free speech advocates warned the action could lead to harsh federal limits on expression and the press. Backpage's adult services listings carrying adverts from sex workers , which are purportedly the focus of criminal probes.

"All the guys that ended up not getting fights, they'll all get paid for not getting fights", White said. He came into the Barclays Center, attacked our fighters, and attacked my staff with a bunch of guys - no. The judge allowed McGregor to keep his passport which means he can fly back to Ireland.

"A decision was made by the New York State Athletic Commission to pull me from UFC 223", Chiesa tweeted. "Broke one of the windows, cut Michael Chiesa real bad".

The MMA superstar is facing multiple charges after violently attacking a bus at UFC 223 Media Day in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Thursday. We talked yesterday before he turned himself in. The windshield of one bus was cracked, and two fighters sustained injuries that caused them to be dropped from the Saturday fight card.

Conor no doubt is an important star for the UFC, being the only man in history to hold two titles at the same time in different weight categories. "I have too many other things to think about".

Marco Belinelli added 17 points for the 76ers (47-30), who also didn't have starter Dario Saric (cellulitis right elbow). The Eastern Conference playoff field is now set, although there's still plenty of uncertainty over the actual matchups.

Chiesa's coach, Rick Little, describes the rampage saying he felt as if "they got jumped".
